Lars and the Real Girl star and director re-unite

Variety reveals that Ryan Gosling and his Lars and the Real Girl director, Craig Gillespie, will reteam on The Dallas Buyers Club, “the true story of Ron Woodroof, a tough Texas electrician who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 and given six months to live. Frustrated with the lack of available medical options and unwilling to accept a death sentence, Woodroof found a lifeline using alternative drugs and created a lucrative smuggling business that made those drugs available to AIDS patients.”

Producer David Bushnell elaborates: “Ron was this hard-drinking, carousing outlaw who got ticked off when told to go home and die. This is about one man’s enduring spirit to live and the effect his actions had on others, even if his actions didn’t start out entirely as altruistic.”

Lars was one of my favorite films of last year, earning the director a free pass for also helming last year’s horrendous Mr. Woodcock, and the story sounds promising enough.…
